All I can say is Fox has a pretty good system they’ve cooked up. Ten million people watch the show [The Simpsons] on the network Fox, then five million different people tune into Fox News to get outraged by it. I just hope that those good, God-fearing people at Fox continue to battle those morally bankrupt people at Fox.

[by way of Wikiquote]
Day by day I hear the voices rising
Started with a whisper like it did before
Day by day we count the dead and dying
Ship the bodies home while the networks all keep score
Did you hear ’em talkin’ ’bout it on the radio
Could your eyes believe the writing on the wall
Did that voice inside you say I’ve heard it all before
It’s like Deja Vu all over again
One by one I see the old ghosts rising
Stumblin’ ‘cross Big Muddy
Where the light gets dim
Day after day another Momma’s crying
She’s lost her precious child
To a war that has no end
— John Fogerty, Deja Vu (All Over Again)
"We cannot simply suspend or restrict civil liberties until the War of Terror is over, because the War on Terror is unlikely ever to be truly over. September 11, 2001, already a day of immeasurable tragedy, cannot be the day liberty perished in this country." — Judge Gerald Tjoflat writing for the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals which ruled unanimously that the city of Columbus could not require protesters to pass through metal detectors before participating in a demonstration to be held next month.
